This is a discussion on Firefight - an Insurgent's view of it (video) within the Law Enforcement, Military & Homeland Security Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=cc8_1178445287...
That vid was captured, which means these track-suit tangos got the hose job.
Talk about an ineffective use of firepower. I think I only saw one person take aim, even with the RPGs. Notice everytime they get up on their "firing line" and had a malfunction (which was often) with a belt fed, they would drag the belt behind them in the dirt. Yup, these guys are a highly disciplined force with alot of knowledge regarding the weapons they use.

Hey guys check this out from the same sight. Gotta get about 4 minutes in then it really gets interesting. Gee I can't wait to bring the troops home.....who knows if we're lucky maybe a few thousand insurgents will follow! I just wonder if Syria put on a similar parade for Nancy?!!

Uh...I missed the part where anyone aimed at anything in particular, unless their "target" was "the other side of town".
My grandpa could've taken'em all out with his ol' thutty-thutty (if he'd been within 150 yard of them, that is...and still alive). He might not even have had reload.
We've GOT to be killing multiples of them for every one of ours who gets hit.

That was interesting. +1 on Bumpers comment.

That was pretty pathetic for all the heavy weapons they had.

There might not have been anyone in that tree-fort thing.
I had seen this vid at another site and it was stated that the vid was captured sometime after it was made. Whic meant bad security by them. So, given their skill at arms I would have to say their recon skillz also sucked and they had no idea they were firing into empty fort.These guys were real internet commandos. Lots of guns...little effect.
Looked like a bunch of idiots to me!! Steve48
Roger that Bumper, Looks like a waste of a perfectly good RPK....
Since when does a "martyr" hide behind a wall?
I agree with Sheldon's observation regarding air support...
I kept waiting for the big boom and then realized there'd be no video if that were the case.....
